Rebasing should be pretty easy. Fancy a go?

There seem to be misunderstanding.
I did not ask you to ask about my PR specifically, as I don't see any
reason to close it, unless it is officially rejected by the core team.
You seemed eager to clean up the 'clutter' of open tickets
and I suggest to ask postgis-devel if it is a good idea to run a clean-up.
Mind you, there are tickets decade old dangling at
and nobody seem to have a problem with them being a 'clutter'

In the post-Paris code sprint times, CMake'ification of PostGIS did gather
enough attention and it was rather an experiment than a feature on demand.
Perhaps this has changed now and PostGIS core team is interested in
maintaining CMake build as official. See Paul's post 
"The CMake thing remains as the eventual prod to make a big build re-org happen
but I’m not sure who’s going to grasp that nettle or when :)"
One-shot contribution of CMake build, without promise of long-term
maintenance brings more trouble (to the core team too) than help.
